Gerard Butler's Height is 6ft 1.25in (186 cm)

Scottish Actor best known for roles in memorable movies like 300, Olympus Has Fallen, RocknRolla and Law Abiding Citizen. He had this to say about his height, "I'm 6'2'. Wait! Don't quote me on that. I'd better ask my publicist". Bizarrely Gerry got described as high as 6ft 4 when he first broke into movies.

Comment on the Height of Gerard Butler

@Gangster What shoes is Novak wearing in that video???
Pete said on 20/Sep/15
Given the video, wherein he's saying "This is Sparta !" alongside Djokovic (because Djokovic was reflecting on the mass invasion of Serbia by Africans before his tennis final), Butler looks around 182cm.
boiannus said on 19/Sep/15
@Jaume My thaughts exectly after this video! He is a lot shorter than Djokovic, at least 4-5 cm. If there is no hole in which Gerard stands, my guess is that he is no more than 182-183 at best.
Andrea said on 17/Sep/15
Yeah, he looks noticeably shorter than Novak there... And Novak himself isn't over 186-187! He must have forgotten the lifts at home :)
Here, you can see him looking near Novak's height: Click Here (this time, he borrowed a pair of lits from Robert Downey Jr :) )
Jaume said on 15/Sep/15
This guy looks 2 inches sorter than 1'88 Novac Djocovic. So he must be less than 183cm.

Rob, what do you think about this clip? Djokoci seems to be taller than Butler. Whats your opinion?
[Editor Rob: he looks under 6ft 1 in the clip!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
He really does look 6ft1(187cm) w/h Cumberbatch, if not a weak 6ft2.
191-193 said on 23/Aug/15
Standing next to someone is not a reliable way to estimate height, at least not from my experience. You need an outside perspective. Gerard is certainly not taller than 186 cm.
Guy said on 19/Aug/15
Stood right next to the dude the other night. Unless he was wearing huge boots or something (I didn't see), he is easily 6'2. Looked more like 6'3.
allaboutheight said on 19/Aug/15
Rob, next to Beckham he's just slightly taller, and I'm not referring to photos with camera advantage but those where they are both next to each other staring at the camera. You've got Beckham listed as 5ft11. Butler seems more of a 6ft rather than 6ft1 or 6ft2 guy.
Boo said on 2/Aug/15
Redux: I bought a s=6'2" mannequin...Ehy? I bid on and won his polo dhirt from rhe wardrobe dept. for the costu dressed the dummy. and everything fit perfectly; is the same height as the dummy@
AlexMahone said on 31/Jul/15
Please! People come with this very bad picture from Gibson and Butler. Gibson is closer to the camera and the ground is not the same because the ground is a little bit plunge on Butler's site.

So, yes too many downgraders and height obsessed guy is here....
NBAer said on 30/Jul/15
He generally looks 6-6'1 to me in most of his movies,also didn't look much taller than 5'10 Michael Hall(aka Dexter) in Gamer,maybe 2 inches.Id give him 6'0.5(184cm)flat and around 6'2 in solid boots.I mean he looks only a mere inch taller next to a 5'11 range bloke like Raoul Bova,so weak 6'1 is closer than strong 6'1,imo.
hijopotamus said on 11/Jul/15
Hal, yes! What's wrong with thinking he is shorter? Or maybe Mel Gibson is taller, you are right!
hal said on 10/Jul/15

Gerard is no shorter than 185cm. I think 186 is a fair listing.
hijopotamus said on 1/Jul/15
After watching the pic with Mel Gibson I seriously give Butler a 6' max. This guy has tricked everyone for years.
Mel was wearing freaking sandals!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/15
If Cumberbatch is 182-183cm range then Butler is near 187cm for sure.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 16/Jun/15
Gerard Butler looks 4-5 CM taller than Benedict Cumberbatch in the photos of the two together, who Rob has met and listed as 5'11.75".
mike 1.82 said on 25/May/15

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/15
He actually looks a decent 6ft2 with that 6ft3 guy.
Prada said on 13/May/15
He certainly looks the height that is claimed, i believe he is 186 cm, just from his built.

Butler looks 186-187cm range with Chris Evans (minimum 5ft11). It's quite obvious he'd edge out Cavill.

I think that if you consider posture, it's actually a tie between the two.

He's similar to Kellan Lutz in a photo that I saw.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Feb/15
Jackman is a solid 6ft2 guy.
Andrea said on 21/Feb/15
Both Gerard and Hugh are not 6'2ers... With that guy, Gerard can look 6'1 range, so for sure he can pull off looking 6'1 with people but he just doesn't look it with Raoul Bova! I'm wondering if Bova would look so tall next to Hugh-"not 6'2"-Jackman too...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/15
Rob, maybe 187cm is possible if he's able to look similar to legit 6ft2 guys like Jackman and that NFL player?
[Editor Rob: there are also photos of gerard with other nfl player Here and Owens is near 6ft 3, so I think from that I still would say 186.]
185dude said on 11/Feb/15
Could someone please explain this? Both heels look very similar.

Andrea said on 5/Feb/15
He looks barely shorter than that guy, Rob. I'm wondering if he wears lifts since with Raoul Bova he doesn't look much over 6'... How do you explain that? It's not only one picture but more pictures where he looks a bit taller than him. And don't tell me Raoul is taller than 5'11.25 because he can look 5'11 flat a lot...
[Editor Rob: the guy might be 6ft 2, maybe he got an earlier in day measurement for nfl, but Butler I think at times just drops more height than is apparent in the photo. I would stick with him being in the 186 range.]
Editor Rob said on 3/Feb/15
He did hold up well against this chap:

Who is supposed to be a fraction over 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/15
6ft1-2 range is perfect. He might even be 187cm.
Similar to Brosnan in Butterfly On A Wheel and also Mark Strong in RocknRolla
Judd said on 21/Jan/15
It's hard for me believe Butler is under 6'0.75"...6'1" sounds good to me!
Mike 1.82 said on 10/Jan/15
Just a joke what the hell guys? He looks 4 cm over Jason sudeikis listed 1.84cm
Andrea said on 9/Jan/15
O yeah and Raoul Bova is over 6'...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
I argue a 6ft0 for Cooper since he can pull off 6ft1+ in a lot of pictures.
186-187cm for Butler as stated by Mike is correct.
Judd said on 4/Jan/15
I think he's something like 6'0.75-6'1"...he's an hair taller than Bradley Cooper (6'0.5").
Mike said on 7/Dec/14
186-187 is his range. 6ft max claims are bull!
Andrea said on 7/Dec/14
Just not to forget...

Butler, Wilkinson, Strong and Kebbell look pretty much identical.
jjeenie said on 23/Sep/14
He is easily 6'1+; I would actually say 6'2", having stood next to him, and I am 5'10".
Jay 184cm said on 19/Sep/14
I would have had this guy as a solid 6'2" but after seeing the photos of him with Raoul Bova and the photos with Mel Gibson, I'm really not sure. He could easily be 181cm it seems.
Andrea said on 19/Sep/14
Anywhere between 6' and 6'1 is possible... 6'1.25 could be his morning height!
184.9 on a bad day said on 18/Sep/14
Gerard Looks the same as Rodrigo Santoro both with sandals. I can't see this under 185( with good posture).he also edge out hugh jackman( I don't know how).
Danny said on 16/Sep/14
Looks anywhere from 5'11 to 6'2, as strange as that sounds. In my opinion, it all depends on the type of footwear. 5'11 guys can pull off a 6'1 look easily with the right shoes. Rob, would you be able to start a page on Chris Zylka?
Andrea said on 16/Sep/14
6'0.75 is the most i'd argue... All these guys claiming 6'1-6'2 range for him should really see him with Raoul Bova, who really is no more than 180-181!
Judd said on 16/Sep/14
i think he' 6'1"
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 6/Sep/14
Well he did appear 1.86m-1.87m in the film 'Olympus has Fallen'. Had a few inches in height over Aaron Eckhart.

Next to Sami Khedira who is listed as 189cm

Butler is bang on the 187 CM mark, period.
afkam99 said on 3/Jul/14
his frame is too small for 6'1-6'2 guy
Mitch said on 28/Apr/14
Rob, not every celebrity lies about their height. This can be proven by looking at the pics of Butler next to Jackman, and Butler next to Stallone. He's at least 6'1.5" but my honest guess would be anywhere from 6'1.5"- 6'2.5".
[Editor Rob: I am well aware of this, as is seen in a big chunk of the listings which are what the celebrity has said.]
Andrea said on 5/Apr/14
I still can't explain why he looks so similar to Raoul Bova, who could even not be 181! But he generally looks around 6'1 with other guys, don't rule out 184 either for him...
Ace said on 31/Mar/14
looked like a solid 6'2" in 300

same height as brosnan in shattered 2007.

I watched the trailer for shattered. At the end, they are face to face.
To me, Brosnan edges out Butler by an inch...

PT said on 24/Jan/14
I was on set with him for Chasing Mavericks, I'm 6' and he seemed a good 2-3 inches taller than me. So 6' 2-3" would be about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/14
Do you think Mark Strong might be the full 6ft2 then, Rob?

He edged out Butler by a couple of centimetres in RocknRolla.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
Rob, I might've asked this ages ago but would you say it's safe to assume that he'd be 6ft2 early morning?
[Editor Rob: I think that's a pretty reasonable assumption.]
jordydecke said on 7/Jan/14
Looks a bit shorter in "Olympus has fallen", more like a 5'11.75 or 6'0 guy. Looks a lot thinner in this film too and I think it suits him more.
berta said on 2/Jan/14
the same height as bradley cooper when cooper has mutch more heels. 186 sounds right
Sam said on 18/Dec/13
Being nose-to-nose with Bradley Cooper proved Butler's 6'2" claims are erroneous. Butler is a guy who can seem bigger on screen than he does in photos. In Rock-n-Rolla, he's a bit shorter than Mark Strong and (more so) Idris Elba.
johnmcc said on 17/Dec/13
Saw a photo of him with my 6'2 Uncle in Paisley and he looked an inch smaller so maybe 185cm evening but this is also good.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/13
The current 186cm listing is spot on. Around the same as Brosnan
SGR said on 22/Nov/13
For me he's 181 cm MAX

cole said on 19/Nov/13
Eckhart seems more like a 178 cm guy to me the more I see him (think Rob also mentioned he could look it next to Yvonne Strahovski). Gerard is closer to the camera in that shot Arch Stanton posted as well. I'd go with 185-186 cm range for Butler, and 178-179 cm for Eckhart.

what do u guys think? with rg3.


I remember tons of analysts/scouts who had seen him in person being surprised at the NFL combine that RG3 measured as high as 6'2 3/8". It was probably a first thing in the morning measurement. Butler appears to be at most .5" shorter in that photo.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 4/Nov/13
He looks 6'2 with Eckhart.
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/13
Yeah, Arch he easily looks around 6'1 with Aaron but remember those pictures with Raoul Bova, who is around 180-181. The same Bova actually struggled to look 5'11 with the footballer Luca Toni, who claimed 193 in an interview. Butler really doesnt look over 183-184 with him, they actually look about the same (Bova has some footwear advantage) but i'm givin him the benefit of doubt. Maybe he's 184?
Arch Stanton said on 30/Oct/13
All the people saying he's max 6 ft check out Click Here with 5'10.75" listed Aaron Eckhart!!
screwylouie77 said on 26/Oct/13
There's a photo of him with Adrien Brody on the base and it looks like GB has a couple/few inches on AB, certainly more than 1.25" between them (you have Brody at 6'0" and Butler at 6'1.25"). So one of these heights is off by a little.
afka said on 4/Oct/13

Looks 186-187cm with good posture.
Mark Strong could be 188cm though.
Balrog said on 5/Sep/13
I think 183-185 is a better range, I thought he was shorter but next to Eckhart he does looks close to 6'1" but can't see him that tall when he is so close in height with Bradley Cooper (maybe lifts on Bradley) and next to Bouva he's no way near to 6'1".
Jack said on 27/Aug/13
Rob next to Mark Strong he looks about 6'1'5" range. Is 187 cm possible for him?
[Editor Rob: I think 186 is still a good shout for him...]
The Thinker said on 24/Aug/13
Here are a couple of pics with Gerard and West Indian Cricketer Chris Gayle... Now Gayle is officially billed at 188cm (6'2"). Looking at these pics makes me doubt even a sincere 6'0.5" billing for Gerard. Have a peek...

He can't be this tall. Look at him with solid 5'9" Hardy, with Bouva and this guy was barely taller (if that) than Bradley Cooper. He's under 6'1". Solid 184cm I think.

Here's a video of Edbassmaster with Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart. Edbassmaster has a video with Chris Daughtry where they stand right next to each other and they both look the exact same height. Daughtry's listed at 5'8", which is what I've always thought Edbassmaster looked. Click Here

I am seeing him on German TV right now. Officially the host of the show (Markus Lanz) is 1.81m, Butler looks a little bit taller but no way 1.88m.

Next to Eckhart he does appear close to 6'1''.

Gerry & his friend, and fellow Scotsman, Craig Ferguson appear together often, and Craig is always noticeably taller. On this site, you bill Craig as 6'1.5"...

If you're right about Craig, Gerry is no more than 6'0.
penguinboy25 said on 19/May/13
This must be the out of bed measurement. I have him around 184-185 IMO.

Have met the man three times- 6'2 for sure. Very tall.

friend of mine whose 190cm met him said he was clearly taller than him and that hes about 6ft1in, so 185-186 fit him good.
Linebacker28 said on 20/Apr/13
He's rangy. Can look anything from a flat 6' to a near 6'2". I'd put the money on 185cm, personally. Looked that against Walker in Timeline, and for the most part in RocknRolla.

I think anything below 6'.5" is unfair, since in this video he appears to have at least an inch over Craig Ferguson. I don't think he could boost himself from 5'11", as some are claiming his height might be, to over 6'2" to loom over Craig without wearing some ridiculous looking shoes. Click Here

6 foot.
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Feb/13
I said it Silent d :)
The 6'2 claim is outrageous... He looks about the same with Raoul Bova, let's say a bit taller just because he has shoe disadvantage... And Bova did neither look 5'11 with footballer Luca Toni, who has claimed 193! No way this guy is 6'1.25 but again he's more "important" and famous than other stars on here, so he probably deserves at least one inch as a gift!
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
That photo with mel gibson makes him look 180cm and mel is wearing sandals. No lifts. He is also wearing thin trainers. This is shocking. Maybe gerard butler is not that tall after all. I am saying he's 6 foot flat now after those shocking mel gibson photos.
kevin said on 4/Feb/13
if cooper is 183-184cm than i would guess butler as 184-185cm cause to me he does look a bit taller.

Rob, you mentioned 184 he can look at lowest. How tall do you think he looks here next to Mel Gibson. Surprises me, I only see 6' tops here.
[Editor Rob: he can vary in those sets of photos from 2 to 4 inches from what I saw]

Pictures of him with Mel Gibson both wearing flat footwear....if Gibson is 5"9 Butler is only 5"10
Lo sgozzatore said on 2/Feb/13
Silent, trust me he's not "at least 6'1"... Have you seen the pics with Raoul Bova or even with Bradley Cooper, who's just a 6' range guy? I'd say he's 6' range too...
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/13
From what I've seen he seems around 6'1".
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/13
He looks close in height to 6'2" Chris Cornell Jake, he can look 6'1.5".

Suspicious footwear. I know gerard butler is at least 6 foot 1 and bradley is a known lift wearer. 186cm.
Sam said on 15/Jan/13
Rob, Butler and Bradley Cooper seem to be around the same height. The only ones where Butler looks taller is where he is closer to the camera or standing straighter. In some of the shots Cooper even seems to have a hair over Butler. I think Butler is under 6'1". Downgrade time yet?

He is at least 6'1. I have a female model friend that is 5'9 and is the 2nd person from the right in this picture. Assuming she has 3in. heels, then Gerard is 6'2 in dress shoes. I'm not sure if this will load because it's a facebook picture.Click Here
Mark E Smith said on 16/Dec/12
Sorry third reason, he is clearly shorter than Jonathan Ross (who may have been 6 1 when younger but at 50 and overweight must have lost height - likely height now say 6).

Also lots of sightings in Glasgow have Gerard him as average - tall rather than tall.

Guess he is 5'11 - 5 11.5.

6'1.5 is outlandish. Also behave over the physique, in Sparta 300 it's mostly CG.
Mark E Smith said on 15/Dec/12
Come on, this site is meant to cut through the fiction. 6ft 1.25in is nonsense for Butler. Three reasons:

lots of Pics with Henrik Larson and Butler at best 2 inches taller. Larson is 5ft 9in tops. Met H in Glasgow, very nice guy but I was surprised how short he was.

Also recall a pic of Butler in petrol filling station standing beside a range rover sport (height 5ft 11.5) and Butler was (you guessed it)standing upright shorter than the roof.
Conti said on 4/Dec/12
I would definitely say 5'11 barefoot,and in shoes 6'1.
James said on 17/Nov/12
6'4 is bizzare for Gerald. He's still tall though at 185cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Nov/12
Rob, i dont know if you're aware but there some photos out there of Butler with Lena Headley, that you met! Well, he is standing pretty straight, she has bad posture and she's wearing slippers (so he also has footwear advantage)... He really doesnt look more than a good 6' next to her (with all these advantages). Maybe it is worth to downgrade him to 6'1 (even if he likely is shorter than that, he's also very similar to Cooper who's nothing over 6'0.25-6'.5)
[Editor Rob: a flat 6ft 1 might be ok]
Lo sgozzatore said on 4/Nov/12
Rob, you want pics? He looks similar to bova who isnt over 181 and isnt taller than cooper, who could easily be 6'!
[Editor Rob: butler for sure can sometimes only look 6 foot range, but I think that's more standing loose. He has less footwear with bova, at least give him that half inch back ;)]
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
I looked more about Bova and he really doesnt look over 180-181 (see the recent pics with Gassman). Butler looks very similar to Bova... There are also some pics of Butler with Bradley Cooper. Butler really doesnt look taller than Cooper, in many pics he even looks shorter. Now we know that Cooper could be 6', so Butler maybe needs a downgrade, Rob?
balrog said on 18/Oct/12
He's 6'0.5'' because he is same height that Bradley Cooper.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Aug/12
Rob, i remember a photo on the pitch (so they had same footwear) of Bova and Luca Toni, who claimed to be 193 (and he looks all of it)... Toni looked at least 5-5.5 inches taller (if im not wrong i showed you that pic and you confirmed that)... I dont think he looks 6', as you say! Anyway, i'll try to see more stuff about him ;)
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Aug/12
Rob, could u please explain how he looks no taller than raoul nova? There are many pics on the net and they look similar, sometimes butler looks even shorter!

Ed said on 8/Sep/07
The actor's name from 300 and Hidalgo that I couldn't remember is Peter Mensah, and he's on this very site listed at 6ft3!
Ed said on 8/Sep/07
Butler might be pushing 6ft1, but I still don't think he's a full 6ft2. As for 300 he wore sandals, but if you look with a closer eye on the dvd docs. they are retrofitted with a good inch sole for all the running around and jumping he had to do. They couldn't give the guy a regular pair of flip flops with a next to nothing sole and have him taking in part in tons of grueling action shots. I for one saw a good 2 inch difference between Butler and Santoro in the premiere pics and onset candids, as well as him being shorter than the tall African American actor(6ft3, can't remember his name yet but I'll find it, he was also in Hidalgo) who plays the Persian messenger that gets kicked down the well.

As for Joel Schumacher the Phantom of the Opera director, I wouldn't trust his words alone, not to mention there are pics of the two of them together online at the Cannes film festival where Schumacher is a good 2 inches taller.

As for Paul Walker(6ft2) in Timeline, Walker wears converse all-stars with maybe a 0.5in heel next to Butler in 1.25-1.5 in heeled hiking boots and Walker is still taller. Walker is pushing 6ft2, maybe more like 6ft1.5 and unlike a lot of actors consistently wears flat soled shoes in movies and still looks way taller than most of the cast.

I will agree Butler can look 6ft2, but that is with boots on. I can't see him as barefoot 6ft2 and 6ft3 or more with boots. He does look tall in Dracula 2000, Dear Frankie, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life, and Beowulf and Grendel but he was also wearing boots in all these pics. I'd still say 6ft0.5 and near 6ft2 with boots on. The Raoul Bova(5ft11.25) pics where he's wearing sneakers instead of boots still say a lot in my opinion as does the MTV movie awards footage with Bruce Willis.
Liz said on 7/Sep/07
I think Gerard IS 6'2"...He is at least as tall as Powers Booth in "Attila"...Did you ever see him in "A YOung Person's Guide to Becoming A Rock Star"? It's a UK mini-series that was one of his first acting gigs in the late nineties...he's so long-legged and heads taller than everyone else in the picture. Joel Schumacher, the director of "Phantom of the Opera" said of him in People magazine: "He looks like a god, but he's a goofball." Now, Joel is way over six feet (6'3"?)..and a fellow who's just six feet couldn't look "like a god." Also, when you have Rodrigo Santoro and Gerard standing next to each other in sandals (in one of the dvd extras that came with the dvd in FYE stores)...they're the same height elevators for either of them. Also in the recent "Shattered" (aka Butterfly on a Wheel)on TNT last week, he was running and running in the movie, and one could see the long legs and extention...he's definitely more than just six feet. In 2005, in the NYTIMES style magazine (he was on the cover),the journalist stated that unlike most actors who are shorter in person, "Gerard was very tall." Now, would a reporter say that if the actor was just six feet? And as others have said, Gerard always seems to tell the truth (even about his reckless youth) I believe him when he says he is "6'2".
venus said on 27/Aug/07
If he's the height listed above, then Paul Walker is a little shorter. Watch Timeline, Paul is what 6 feet?
sam said on 23/Aug/07
He looked like a solid 6'2 in "300", especially while battling the Persians. Either that, or they used smaller actors to play the roles of the Persians.
Boxing Fighter said on 12/Aug/07
Yes, I agree qwerty.
In Dracula 2000 he did look something like 6ft3. But in 300, no more than 6ft0.5.

He didn't look even remotely tall in 300. If I had to guess, I'd say around 6'0.5".

Butler looked at least 6-1 standing alone though.
Ed said on 9/Jun/07
Butler received an award on the MTV Movie Awards last week from Bruce Willis and Justin Long. When Butler took the stage he greeted Willis with an up close handshake/man hug and he looked to have 1 inch max on Willis. Butler was wearing what appeared to be normal dress shoes, and Willis had on casuals and wasn't looking exceptionally tall only a few inches taller than Long(5ft9). I think this once again shows Butler is looking more like 6ft0.5, not 6ft1.5 or 6ft2 like he claims. If Willis is only 5ft11.5, like I said Butler had an inch on him not 2 or more. I really think 6ft2 is a with shoes height claim! After all wearing boots or thick soled casual shoes at 6ft0.5 barefoot, you'd be near 6ft2 and no one would dispute that.
Jason said on 28/May/07
Really? Maybe you're right by the sound of some of these pics. I guessed 186cm from the movie.
l0ck n l0ad said on 28/May/07
I'm watching 300 right now, I'd peg him at 6'0-1/2", doesn't seem under 6'0" yet doesn't seem a legit 6'1" barefoot.
Ed said on 26/May/07
Boxing Fighter I agree Butler can look tall, he accepted an award last night at the Taurus World Stuntman Awards and he looked pretty tall up on the stage. I just don't get Bova then. Most male actors under but near 6ft usually round up, not round down! If Bova is more like 5ft11.75 why round down, unless it's just an innacurate listing. Still 0.5in is all we are different on, if you think Butler's 6ft1 which he might be. I'm just sticking with 6ft0.5 until hopefully Glenn gets a pic. 6f0.5 barefoot with 1.25-1.5in dress shoes and you're near 6ft2 while accepting an award on stage, or wearing 1.5 in boots in public and or movies and you're near 6ft2 again.
Boxing Fighter said on 25/May/07
Sorry, I was talking to Ed, not with MD.
But I think that he is 6ft1 not 6ft0.5.
He is a tall guy.
Boxing Fighter said on 24/May/07
Yeah MD, I agree with you.
I don't think that Bova would lie about being smaller.
Maybe that "5ft11.25" is not official, or maybe Butler isn't that tall.
I don't think that Butler could be taller than 6ft1 either.
But I saw that Butler likes to bend in pictures with smaller persons.
I think he likes to appear friendly instead of keeping that arrogant military posture (like some famous actors usually do).
Ed said on 24/May/07
I've seen those pics before Boxing Fighter, and they prove that there's no way that Bova can be 5ft11.25 and Butler 6ft1.5. Someone is lying here! Bova has to be either closer to 6ft and Butler is topping out at 6ft0.5 max, or Butler is 6ft flat! Good pics, they show it's not a fluke. It's not one isolated incident with a distorted picture, but several pics over a day on level ground standing shoulder to shoulder. He's also similarly matched with the 5ft11.5 listed Joseph Fiennes. I don't see a 2 inch difference there, or a 2.25 inch difference with Bova?

Good pics Boxing Fighter, Butler is definitely looking more like 6ft0.5! I thought he was legitimately 6ft2 once, but I'm more and more suspecting he's only 6ft0.5. I see Leno as 5ft11 and around 6ft or so in shoes, and Butler only looked to be about an inch or so more every time he's come on the Tonight Show. If Leno is only 5ft10 like a lot of people think around here, then Butler would be even shorter which I don't see.

Ed said on 12/May/07
It's not a bit much if you consider a lot of celebs could very well use their with shoes height as their official height. 6ft0.5 barefoot with 1-1.5 inch heeled shoes and your 6ft2 or pushing it. As for lifts, I don't know about that other than he has worn boots in a lot of his movie roles with the exception of 300. I've referenced the movie Timeline several times, and in it he wears hiking boots and strangely looks shorter than the listed 6ft2 Paul Walker by about an inch, who's wearing 0.5 in heeled converse all-stars. If Walker was 6ft2.5 in his shoes that would put Butler at 6ft3 easy in hiking boots standing 6ft1.5 barefoot. Yet Walker is the one who's taller by an inch? Something is off there, Butler has to be shorter than listed. I thought Butler was taller and close to the 6ft2 mark, but I'm seriously doubting it now.
Boxing Fighter said on 11/May/07
I really can't see how Butler shorter than 6ft0.5.
His photos with Santoro can easily prove that.
Santoro is (with almost no doubt) 6ft2, Butler appears to be 1" or 1.5" (max!!) smaller than him. I think that Butler is something between 6ft0.5 and 6ft1.
That picture with Bova can be easily explained if we all agreed that Butler is not 6ft1.5.
MD said on 11/May/07
That seems like a bit much. He'd have to be a regular lift wearer to get routinely described as being legitimately tall (6'2"+).
Ed said on 11/May/07
Viper, I'm with you on this one! Glenn saw Brosnan at under 6ft1 in person, and in the pics with Butler they are very evenly matched. Just look at the pics of Butler with McgGregor at 5ft9.5(could be smaller) and he looks all of 3 inches taller. 6ft0.5 is still my guess for Butler, and I wouldn't rule out he could be a bit less.
Viper said on 10/May/07
Butler only looked 6-0 with Brosnan as well.
MD said on 9/May/07
6'1" is most likely, though, I just don't think I could ever explain that pic of him and Bova.

Glenn saw Brosnan at under 6ft1,and I agree with that estimate. 6ft0.5-6ft.075 barefoot, and 6ft1.75-6ft2 with shoes. If wearing heeled boots that number can vary. I've always thought that a lot of celeb heights are with shoe estimates. There are a lot of legit tall actors, and yeah Lee may have been 6ft5 but has shrunk a lot now, looking 6ft2.5. There's pics from the premieres of Revenge of the Sith in which he still looks 6ft3ish with a good 1.5-2 inches on Samuel L.Jackson. At the end of the day these are all photos or film clips which can be horribly deceiving. Slanted sidewalks, distorted perspective, directors trying to make their stars look taller with enhanced camera angles, and the infamous shoe lifts. Only with a credible eyewitness or meeting these people in person will there be true accurate estimates imo.
I see Butler as the same as Brosnan, 6ft0.5-6ft0.75 barefoot. Maybe I'm wrong, but until I run into either of them or Glenn sees Butler and says he looked 6ft2, I'm not changing my mind. Glenn saw Brosnan as under 6ft1, I'll go with that.
Anonomoose said on 8/Apr/07
Lee has also been seen as taller than that, even at 85 he's maintained excellent posture. But those Brosnan/Lee films were 14-17 years ago, not recent. Neeson may be a terrible sloucher but again Glenn was not discounting that when giving his height and measuring Liam against himself, and it still doesn't account for how Brosnan is clearly more than 3 inches taller than 5'10 (according to Glenn) Gabriel Byrne.

Famke is not as tall as Brosnan in that scene, if you watch she gets up on her toes and practically climbs him, it's not a stationary flat footed scene. She's not in flats in Goldeneye, you can see her shoes and boots not only in the film but several publicity shots, they're at least 2 1/2 inch heels (as in the casino scene). They wanted her to look tall and impressive, no one was hiding her height - at least not next to Brosnan. They did try a bit (with various camera angles and sitting/standing) next to Sean Bean who when in her heels she has at least 3 inches on, as does Brosnan over Bean. Anyhow this is the Butler board and we're way off topic.

In regards to Butler and Brosnan, again you're completely discounting Brosnan's wife in those photos as well as a multitude of other photos. She's over 5'8 and Brosnan is easily more than 5 inches taller than her.

I just had a look at the Conan and Gerard interview. Something looks weird with the camera angle that shows a stooped Conan as 3 inches taller, seeing as how it's slanted downwards to the left...

Ed said on 3/Apr/07
Lee has been seen at 6ft2.5-6ft3 tops these days, the man is 85 so it's understandable! Lee refers to himself at 6ft4, but he did look taller when younger. Neeson is a terrible sloucher with his shoulders always rounded over, and it's possible he's lost a bit of height to, not much but maybe a 0.5in. BTW wasn't Brosnan virtually the same height in the sauna scene with 5ft11.5 Famke Jansen. there's no doubt when she wears heels she is very tall, but she wears flats in most movies,ie. Rounders.
I still think Butler and Brosnan are 6ft0.5-6ft.075 tops.
Anonomoose said on 2/Apr/07
Brosnan was wearing dress shoes at that event as other photos show. Besides, Glenn didn't say Brosnan was wearing boots and hence deducted the heels from his height-- just that to him Brosnan looked slightly under 6'1, Byrne at 5'10 and Neeson at 6'4. Looking at the multitude of photos from the same night, Brosnan looked easily more than 3 inches taller than Byrne and closer to Neeson's height than Byrne's which would put him over 6'1 and mean Glenn's estimates were off that night.

Brosnan was in Around The World in 80 days ('80s) and Death Train with Lee (ealry '90s). There was a photo of them in Death Train together that used to be posted on the Brosnan page. Lee is also listed at 6'5 and the man still has lost little from his peak.
Ed said on 2/Apr/07
Anonomoose, I'm not picking and choosing my heights for my argument. I just looked at the Brosnan/Neeson/Bryne pic and Brosnan does look quite tall. But, Neeson rarely stands as straight as Brosnan and I'm willing to bet Brosnan was wearing some serious boots. You're much more up on Brosnan than I am, so which was the film Brosnan starred in w/Christopher Lee. In TMWTGG I saw Moore as tops 6ft1 to Lee's 6ft4. Lee had him by a good 3 maybe more inches. Moore wore a lot of higher heeled boots in the 70's Bond flicks adding to his height and slim frame. Brosnan loves the heels as well, always wearing some kind of boot.

It might be hard to judge 0.5 to 1 inch in person, but all I know is Glenn met Brosnan and Ford and Frank2 met Ford and Connery. Glenn saw Brosnan and pegged him at under 6ft1, he saw Ford at 6ft1, whereas Frank2 saw Connery at 6ft1 and Ford at 6ft. Conflicting numbers, mean these heights are somewhere near or in between!
Anonomoose said on 1/Apr/07
It seems to be a matter of picking and choosing what to believe -- or rather ignoring all those photos and heights of other celebrities and people when they don't conform to a held belief. There are a multitude of conflicting photos and reports, especially where the Bond actors are concerned.

Brosnan at the AFI stood taller next to Ford (and a couple of other people at the same event) than Connery did, which would make him taller than Connery is now. He's also taller than Moore, now by several inches but also seemingly taller when Moore was at his peak when you look at films they both star in against Christopher Lee as well as photos of Brosnan next to his wife Cassie Harris who was in FYEO with Moore. The only photo showing them at the same height is one on a slanted sidewalk. Yet that site has him as shorter than Moore and chooses to cut Brosnan out of the 4 Bonds photo at the 2002 BAFTAS where he towers over Moore.

Glen also pegged Gabriel Byrne at 5'10 and Neeson at 6'4 -- and yet in photos from the same event with him next to all three it's obvious that Brosnan is closer in height to Neeson than Byrne which would make him over 6'1. Glenn also originally thought Craig was 5'11. It goes to show that it's very hard to tell height within an inch even when you're up close, let alone half an inch.
Ed said on 1/Apr/07
MD, if he's 6ft1.5 barefoot tops, 6ft2.5 to 6ft3 in shoes, what's with the Conan Obrien show? Conan was hunched over and had him by near 3 inches which you can attest to as well. That would make Conan 6ft6 stooped, 6ft7 or more standing up straight, no way!! Butler has to be more like 6ft0.5 barefoot, 6ft1.75-6ft2 w/shoes to Obrien's 6ft5plus. I don't know what to make of this, because I know I'm not seeing things since you saw the same. Anonomoose as for the Eon site, maybe it's a bunch of crap, but it does track with observations of these actors heights. Craig has been downgraded by Rob to 5ft10.25, and most think he's shorter, Connery was seen by Frank2 as 6ft1 in his prime and he also met Harrison Ford which he thought was 6ft no more. As for Brosnan there's pics of him with Ford where he looks marginally taller and close to Connery's height if not shorter, and Glenn pegged him at a little under 6ft1. Even if that site is bogus, it does track pretty well!
MD said on 1/Apr/07
Ed, to tell you the truth, I really don't know. I'm seeing more evidence pointing to a 6'0.5"-6'1.5", tops, barefoot, though. This would allow him to look almost or about 6'3" in the 'right' kind of shoes. I just can't see him as a legitimate 6'2" barefoot.
Ed said on 31/Mar/07
MD, what do you peg Butler at? You saw the Conan show, where he looked at least 3 inches shorter than a stooped Conan. If Obrien is 6ft4 barefoot, 6ft5 with shoes, Butler can't be near 6ft3 w/shoes on. Usually Conan looks shorter at times next to guests, this time he dwarfed a widely regarded tall man while not even standing up straight. Butler at 6ft0.5 makes much more sense. Near 6ft2 w/shoes on to Obrien's 6ft5plus. Between the Bova pic,the Conan show,and The Miracle Match movie I really think this guy is shorter than listed. as for Brosnan, I never bought he was 6ft1.25!
Anonomoose said on 31/Mar/07
For perspective, there's also the height of Brosnan's wife- Keely Shaye Smith - she's a former model and is supposedly 5'8 1/2 (though I've seen 5'8 for her as well). There she's wearing at least 2 1/2 inch heels (might be 3) which brings her to a minimum 5'10 1/2- 5'11. She's coming up to PB and GB's respective eyelines-- which means they're both standing quite a bit taller than 6'2 with their boots on.
Anonomoose said on 31/Mar/07
Ed, that info is 1,000,000-1 fan made up baloney. Do you really think EON is releasing official Bond heights, let alone that they're only releasing it to one low level fan site on the net? As if EON would admit Craig was only 5'10 when they've gone out of their way to not only avoid but lie about his height. Pascal the head of Sony laughably said when he was first chosen that he wasn't short that he was as big as Connery. Craig doesn't talk about his height either and this site claims he admits to being 5'10. Yeah right. All the stuff about admissions by all the actors, EON etc looks like pretty much crap pulled out of thin air.
Viper said on 31/Mar/07
Could Butler be 6-0? Brosnan is looking taller!!
MD said on 30/Mar/07
Actually, neither of them is standing up to their full height, but I thought it was good in that it shows them on a relatively even surface.
Ed said on 30/Mar/07
On the Daniel Craig page, Observer on Jan 19, 2007 posted a link to a site that claims all the offical heights for the diff. Bond actors. It says they were measured individually for the production co. Eon which is behind all the Bond films. This site has Brosnan listed at 6ft0.5 barefoot. Throw on a pair of heeled boots like he's wearing in the pic and he'd be 6ft2, which is what he's usually referred to as. Butler looks pretty much the same height as him. I'm really beginning to think Butler is only 6ft0.5, and his height in shoes or boots (6ft2 which is what I always read), is what his publicists list him at.
Anonomoose said on 30/Mar/07
Not really, the sidewalk is slanted in Butler's favor, especially in that photo -- look at the other photos from the same set and Brosnan looks taller. Again it's on a NYC sidewalks which are always slanted.

Ed said on 29/Mar/07
Rob, if you watch Timeline Butler and Paul Walker are very similar in height with Walker having the edge while wearing chucks to Butler's hiking boots. In decent boots Butler would be 6ft3 minimum close to 6ft3.25 standing at 6ft1.75 barefoot, and it's pretty obvious Walker is not 6ft3.5 or more with chucks on. Walker's prob. 6ft2 barefoot and a little over w/chucks, putting Butler at 6ft0.75 barefoot maybe even 6ft0.5. I don't think Butler wears lifts, I just think his publicized height is with shoes.
Editor Rob said on 28/Mar/07
Butler's certainly one guy who at times can look like a 184cm guy even. Certainly deleting that '7' from the listing might make it closer.
MOF said on 27/Mar/07
Butler also looked only a bit taller than 6'0" Vincent Regan 300 co-star. He may be 184cm?
Ed said on 26/Mar/07
Yeah MD, THE Bova/ Butler pic is bizarre. Is Bova wearing lifts in a big way? Plus, if you asked me how tall I thought they were from just looking at the pic w/out knowing their heights, I'd guess 5ft10-5ft11. They don't look especially tall, at least not near 6ft2 barefoot/or6ft3 w/shoes for Butler. Something is seriously off because if Butler is 6ft1.75 barefoot/6ft2.75 minimum w/shoes that means Bova would be wearing 3.5 inches of lift, and that's ridiculous.I just saw 300 finally yesterday,and Butler looked 6ft1-6ft2 in the movie while wearing sandals, and he looked tall in The Miracle Match(aka The Game of their Lives) but only about 2 inches taller than the 5ft11 Wes Bentley. Rob,do you think Butler might be more like 6ft.075 and wears big heels to get up over 6ft2, because on Conan he looked 6ft tops barefoot while Conan was stooping over him?

Ed, I noticed that, too. I was expecting him to be very close to Conan in height, but I also thought he looked a good 3" shorter than Conan. I'm still tripping over the Raoul Bova picture, though.
Ed said on 24/Mar/07
Butler was on Conan last night, and when he came out Conan dwarfed him and wasn't even standing up straight. Conan has to be 6ft4 at a minimum maybe taller, because while hunched over he had Butler by a good 3 inches.

Seen Gerard in NY when he was on TRL. I am a bit over 6'2" and he was pretty close in height with me. So I think 6'1.5" is about right. No less than 6'.
MD said on 20/Mar/07
With 5'11.25" Raoul Bova:

In this picture, they are standing on a ramp, and Gerard even has the slight advantage of being a little further up. A strange picture, indeed. A lift wearer, maybe? I'd never thought so until I see saw this. He could get to about the height listed, now, with lifts.

They are close in height, but it looks like Rodrigo has a slight edge.

Rob, how about adding Rodrigo Santoro? After everyone saw 300, I bet alot are searching online to see if the actor really is 7 feet in real life!

[Editor Rob: yeah, sure I will add him...but he really IS 7 foot tall, don't spoil the myth ;)

6ft 2ish range yes...]

Gerard looks about the same height with actor Rodrigo Santoro(who plays Xerxes in 300)who is listed as 6'2.75"(1.90m)

I met him the other day at a club and chatted with him. Definitely is 6'2"
T.M. said on 7/Nov/06
Saw him outside a club in LA last July and I doubt he really stands 6'2'' because I am and the guy was shorter than me. I was wearing flip flops while Gerry had tennis shoes or something on. Just my two cents.
Ed said on 13/Oct/06
Venus, I'm not quite sure what you are saying, is it that you think Walker wears lifts? If that's the case I gotta disagree with you, because Walker has been in movies in flat soled converse all-stars and flip flops and still looked taller than his castmates. If you watch Timeline again you'll see Walker wears chucksin the first part of the film, and is taller than Butler who's wearing boots. No way to pinpoint both their exact heights, but I'm guessing Butler's close to 6ft1.5 and Walker is close to 6ft2.

Gerald Butler is 6'2, he is taller than the star of Timeline Paul Walker, who looks to be 6'1 the most, but he wears thick sole sneakers, and thick sole boots alot, could there be lifts in his shoes?
Ed said on 29/Sep/06
I think he's genuinely 6ft2 or at least 6ft1.5, I watched Beowulf and Grendel the other night, and there is barely any difference, maybe a half to an inch between Butler and the 6ft3 Stellan Skarsgard. I've doubted Butler and Paul Walker's 6ft2ish listings, but after seeing him in this film with Skarsgard I'm pretty convinced that both Walker and Butler who starred together in Timeline are close to 6ft2.
The Truth said on 19/Jul/06
6'2", no doubt! He even looked 6'3" or 6'4" in some of the scenes in Phantom of the Opera. He's no liar and I never see him in shoe lifts. He's a solid 6'2"!

Gerards mum used to live next to my grandad in Comrie and I met him once. He was pretty tall. I was about 5'7 at the time and he was way taller than me. 6'2 seems reliable.

look at gerard butler and christian bale (who is said to be 6') in " the reign of fire " in the star wars fight skit.

Rob - fellow Jock here! Aberdeen.
Butler never really looked anything less than 6'1.5" so I think that Spanish Bova bloke may sporting dodgy shoes..? Not impossible.

[Editor Rob: could be just one of those pics where you 'scratch the head'...a fellow Jock, nice!]
J.J.F said on 24/Jan/06
Matt, that is a very curious pic - he's always looked 6'2"ish on every other pic... maybe a member of the elevator club?
What d'you think rob??

[Editor Rob: he gets mentioned in Scottish papers here as 6ft 3 on many occasions...the very same papers who have printed Rod Stewart as 5ft 5 for 10 years!]
Danny F. said on 12/Jan/06
Gerry Butler is about 6' 2", according to...himself. Emmy is 5' 7", I believe, and Patrick must be about 6'.

From 2003 Mirror article, "[Standing] 6ft 4ins, he has quite an imposing presence"

Yeh, look at that Samurai movie with Tom Cruise! He must've done some of his trademark Oprah-wrestling, sofa-jumping excitement then. Until they cast Ken Watanabe...:)

Look at Alan Ladd (5'5)and Veronic Lake (4'11) - they couldn't find the right height people for each other, until them. And look at the pre-Brando/James Dean era - all very tall leading men - John Wayne, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Rock Hudson. This was to create a very clear-cut gender-divide (n.b. anyone know how tall Judith Butler is :) ?)

If Gerard Butler is 6'2", which I believe he is, how tall then is Emily Rossum and Patrick Wilson, his costars in "Phantom"? I think both of them must be taller than I thought--Emily about 5'9" and Patrick about 5'll". My guess is, the taller the leading man, the taller the supporting cast can be--that way the director doesn't always have to be adjusting things to make the leading man look tall (i.e. Humphrey Bogart, Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, etc.)
